If you are here, it may be because you have already read our article on agoraphobia, which helps to better understand this phobia.

However, here is a short definition of agoraphobia: It is an excessive fear of being in places from which it is difficult to escape. Thus, people who suffer from it will fear public places. Several situations can be anxiogenic within the framework of this phobia: the closed spaces (types elevator, chairlift, planes?), the very large spaces (shopping centers, freeways?), the public places in general rules (types public transport, cinema, supermarkets?). 

Often in connection with agoraphobia, we can find panic attacks (impression of suffocating, that we can “die” from our fear, impression of fainting, heart rate that is accelerated…) 

In our more detailed article on agoraphobia, you were able to take a test to find out whether or not you have agoraphobia. There are also more medical tests, scientifically validated. If you wish, you can also take this medical test. 

In any case, if you are here, it is because you are questioning your emotions. Don’t forget that no test can replace your feelings. If you feel that you need to be accompanied, do not hesitate to contact a therapist who will help you in your emotional management.
